It's *not* incorrect to map as you see fit.
It *is* incorrect to map in contravention to the description in the
Wiki.
It *is* incorrect to map without the wiki containing an explanation of
how you map.

If there are a dozen different ways to enter a stop sign into OSM, and
they're all documented in the Wiki, that's good.

If there are a dozen different ways to enter a stop sign into OSM, and
one isn't documented in the Wiki, that's bad.

If, of course, two people read the Wiki and map differently, that's
not their fault -- it's the Wiki's description's fault.
